Since 1987, the Royal Mint of Great Britain has been issuing coins with what is known as the Britannia design introduced by sculptor Philip Nathan. The Silver Britannia was first minted in 1997 in a Silver Proof Set. Prior to 1997, only Gold Britannias were issued.
Each Royal Mint Tube of 2018 Silver Britannias holds a quantity of 25 coins. Air-Tites and 2x2 Coin Flips to house individual coins can be purchased in our Coin Holders section here.
